    Sex (Mis)Education in the English-Speaking World

    Historical, Literary and Socio-political Perspectives

    This call for papers seeks contributions that will engage with the competing forms of formal and informal sex education as they pertain to the English-speaking world with a special focus on English speaking societies from the Indian ocean. Our aim is to propose varied, innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to the broad question of sex education, welcoming papers from historians, linguists, literary critics, sociologists, specialists in gender studies and others. Keeping in mind Foucault’s notion that sex is both hyper visible and taboo, we aim at providing in-depth discussions which will help better understand both formal and informal sex education taking into account the fact that sex education is fraught with cultural tensions and political feuds.

    On Matter

    Venice Issues

    Matter is said in many ways. From its constant presence along the history of philosophy, through the emergence of contemporary theoretical attempts to redefine it, to its central role in political and pedagogical debates, the concept of matter resists any fixed and unambiguous characterization. The main objective of this conference is to open up a debate, encouraging different disciplinary approaches, on the subject of matter. For this very reason, the structure of the conference has been articulated into four different panels which not only are aimed at fostering reflections on the conference topic, but also to represent a real ground for disciplinary exchange and dialogue. To this regard, we propose to explore the semantic constellation of matter in the fields of History of Philosophy and Science, in contemporary philosophical debates both theoretical and practico-political and, finally, from the perspective of Education Sciences.

    Translating Knowledge: From Theory to Praxis

    Translating academic knowledge into social praxis has always been a central question for critical theory. This is particularly true in an age of polycrisis. Climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, and housing precarity yield a unique moment that urges us to consider how to bridge the gap between academic and practical knowledge. We understand translation not only in the linguistic sense, but in a broader sense as interpretations, associations, and representations that mediate between different contexts. Together with John Clarke and Shahram Khosravi, this graduate conference aims to ask: What can be gained or lost in the translation of knowledge? How can translation be used for community-oriented social research? How can it be used as a critical methodological tool? We invite papers that draw on empirical analyses as well as theoretical ones.

    Transversal Skills for Work and Life: Strengthening Guidance and Validation

    Transval-EU Research Conference

    Both in work settings and in daily life, there is a growing need for individuals to develop high-level competences to address complex challenges. Transversal competences set the foundation for personal development, resilience, the ability to communicate and work constructively with others, problem-solving skills, and the ability to manage one’s learning and career. Yet transversal competences are. not always valued or made visible in guidance and validation processes for adult learners. TRANSVAL-EU, one of the largest policy experimentations in Europe, has aimed to bridge this gap in guidance and assessment in the area of validation of non-formal and informal learning (VNFIL).

    The First National Conference on Language, Literature, and Culture (NCLLC)

    Todd (1987) defined literature as "language at full stretch". Stretch, here, refers to all the different practices of language by its users, and the common or even rare stylistic features of those users. Thus, a deep understanding of literature, especially the specific usages by writers and poets requires the mastery of the sentence’s internal mechanisms and beyond.

    Polarized Societies? Challenges for Sociology

    XII Portuguese Congress of Sociology

    The challenges that polarization brings to sociology now extend to crucial domains of social processes and action, reaching, among others, the arenas of consumption, religions, identities, sexuality, childhood, culture, and science. In this context, the digitization of society and the economy creates and emphasizes dynamics of polarization, while simultaneously opening up new possibilities. Beyond the general impact on social interactions and practices, to what extent are the new social media a factor that promotes expressions of polarization?

    Toward an integrative cognitive science of social inequalities

    The goal of this seminar series is to discuss research coming out of the fields of cognitive science and sociology, with the hope of articulating the social and cognitive dimensions of inequalities. Are there bridges between these two fields? What are the challenges for interdisciplinary research? Although the differences between the fields of cognitive science and sociology cannot be denied, the goal of this seminar is to facilitate scientific exchange among communities of researchers interested in questions that relate to social inequality.

    Violent Turns: Sources, Interpretations, Responses

    The aim of this international conference is to provide researchers with an interdisciplinary platform to investigate and debate the question of contemporary irruptions of political violence and to inquire into the different responses intended to counteract violence. When and why do individuals, groups, and societies come to believe that peaceful means and legal avenues of redress, including non-violent civil disobedience, are insufficient or improper to achieve a social or political goal and to view violent action as morally legitimate and necessary for change? Can one identify trends shaping recourse to violence by parts of the populace? What role does state violence play in the dialectic? When, if ever, is political violence legitimate? How can violence be averted?
